Chant 1:
la Nuit du coeur

Flamenco-jazz-rock opera and poetry

 

/ Show on tour

Let yourself be taken on a musical and emotional journey by five artists who, in their respective practices, are among the best performers in Montreal! ​

 

Chant 1: La Nuit du coeur is a unique stage experience combining theatricality and musical excellence, poetry and daring fusion (flamenco, jazz improvisation, sampling, rock and lyrical impulses). ​

 

An invitation to question ourselves collectively: what have we done with our voices/speech and what use does it serve? How can we renew this bond of trust between us?

 

A call to communion and reverence. A resolutely optimistic quest for “this beauty which will save the world” (Pierre Rabhi).

ICI MUSIQUE / RADIO-CANADA

“A flamenco spirit, an extraordinary voice and a keen sensibility, both generous and genuine. Through the great talent of these musicians, the music’s flamenc  o roots expand to touch on jazz, rock and Latin. An emotionally moving performance staged with incredible skill. A call for a gentle, sincere spirituality.”
